Nutrition and Fibromyalgia
I have been dealing with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and fibro for over 22 years now. It first started when we were overseas, living (literally) out in the jungle. All our food was fresh and "homemade" because of our location. Lots of fruits (local one) and veggies. Meat/eggs/fish fresh "off the hoof", so to speak. Then literally overnight I got sick with the CFS and life has never been the same. We live in the USA now--not that it helps the CFS or fibro, but certain things are easier. I found your website via Ravelry and knitting and one of the groups that Josh Tucker often comments on.
We have no health insurance, so doctors (for the most part) are out of the question, as are most tests. So...what could you recommend as the most important part of a treatment regimen that I can set up for myself. I deal with the normal ups/downs of these problems, but recently have had more downs and quite severe ones. I do NOT want to spiral down to where I was when this all started. Fatigue and mental "fogginess" and an inability to concentrate/think would be the primary issues I am dealing with currently. I sleep, but not well. And there is a fair amount of pain throughout my whole body. I do mild exercise at Curves, but somedays even that is WAY too much to handle mentally or physically.
It is not life-threatening, but certainly is not what I want for my lifestyle. Thanks for your help.
